Movie News: Hugh Laurie a Villain in 'Tomorrowland;' Trailers for 'The Internship' and 'Trance'

Feb 14, 2013

The Oranges

Tomorrowland: Hugh Laurie, former star of TV’s House, is now in talks to play a villain in the highly secretive sci-fi project Tomorrowland. George Clooney is attached to star, with Brad Bird set to direct. Laurie was in talks for a villainous role in the RoboCop reboot, but that fell through, with Michael Keaton stepping in. Laurie certainly would make a good foil for Clooney; the movie is due for release on December 14, 2014. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Spy Hunter: Bit by bit (byte by byte?), the video game Spy Hunter is inching toward a big-screen adaptation. Several months ago, director Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad) joined the project, and now a new screenwriter has finally been hired. Carter Blanchard has only a scant few official credits, but he sold at least three scripts in the last year alone, including one that landed a coveted spot on the Black List of best unproduced screenplays.

The Internship Trailer: Ah, the magic of the Internet. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star in The Internship as salesmen who get laid off from their jobs and then try to join the modern world by snaring internships at a high-tech company. The first trailer makes it look like “Old School at Google.” The comedy opens on June 7. [Fox on YouTube]

Trance Red-Band Trailer: The first trailer for Danny Boyle’s Trance emphasized the lighter side of a crime caper gone wrong, but the new red-band (NSFW) trailer delivers a series of jolts to the nervous system, including one shot that may blow your mind and/or make you lose your lunch. James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel star; the movie’s due out on April 5. [The Playlist]
